Scientific reactions and effects often create amazing visual art — you just have to be lucky enough to capture it on time! Taiwanese photographer Will Ho was vacationing on the Maldives Islands when he was just so lucky.

These stunning photographs, taken by Ho, feature bioluminescent phytoplankton — or light-emitting microorganisms — found in the ocean. These microorganisms glow and can be seen when they are under stress, as seen here when the water hits the shore, or if they are stepped on or agitated.
